Where Is God in Your Pain?

Leave a comment


When you hurt with loss

In terror’s grip reside

When bitterness has grown

When evil reigns with greed

The messenger of hope

Is ambushed by regret

The souls you cannot lose

Have gone outside your reach

When life seems far too hard

Where is God in your pain?

When love replaces loss

And justice conquers fear

When hates have been forgot

When good redeems the dread

When hope is found again

To never have been lost

The human love you mourned

Is loosed to soothing grace

When hardships are endured

There is God in your pain.

When wisdom opens eyes

To see what pride conceals

When sin and guilt are lost

Mistakes brought to the light

When truth defeats deceit

Humanity sees change

When words of ancient fact

Have been remembered so

When self-control is loved

There is God in your pain

Bring forth your rebuttal.

Assert God’s tyranny.

Denounce the truest love

That teaches consequence.

You think you disprove God

By cursing in His name;

But are you hurting less?

Does your cause bring you joy?

If God does not exist,

Then why do you feel pain?

Good understanding produces favor,

 But the way of the treacherous is hard.

 Proverbs 13:15

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
